Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands broke the 23-year-old women's mile world record on Friday when she clocked four minutes 12.33 seconds, beating the 4:12.56 set by Russia's Svetlana Masterkova in Zurich in 1996.

Hassan looked to be off the pace in the rarely-run event but finished strongly to set the new mark.
